Smug hets rule in the state capitol

On Wednesday the proposed amendment to the Pennsylvania state Constitution banning same-sex marriage and civil unions passed the House State Government Committee on a 15 - 13 vote, sending it to the full House for a vote sometime this spring.

This happened in spite of hundreds rallying against the amendment the day before.

Opponents of the amendment say it is so poorly worded it could affect all non married couples in the state - gay or straight. It could be used to nullify domestic partner benefits for public employees. It also would likely interfere with publicly funded universities’ ability to offer those benefits.

I'm afraid that if this is written into the state constitution, it's going to ruin a lot of lives just so a few hets can feel smug and entitled.
